Beginning in the Neolithic Age, Ben Lewis's film takes us through the changing world of poverty. You go to sleep, you dream, you become poor through the ages. And when you awake, what can you say about poverty now? There are still very poor people, to be sure, but the new poverty has more to do with inequality? duration 53:34   STEREO

    Focus On Europe [#3116] Putting a military tank in your garage - A Ukrainian phenomenon HUNGARY: THE PROBLEM OF WATER - Nearly 2 million people in Hungary - particularly in the southeast - lack access to clean drinking water. In a number of European countries, the groundwater is contaminated with heavy metals. Hungary, Serbia and Croatia are especially affected, but the problem is particularly acute in Hungary, where many municipalities cannot afford to drill down to deeper and cleaner groundwater. At the same time, the European Union says clean water is a human right, and member states must take action to ensure it. But both local governments and national leaders in Hungary are ignoring the problem.
    TURKEY: WHEN WOMEN EARN MONEY - Equality for women remains a controversial issue in Turkish society, even though legally their status is clear. The Turkish constitution says that men and women are completely equal. As part of the country's bid for EU membership in recent years, Turkey has instituted a number of legal reforms. That's improved the situation of women. For instance, women no longer need their husbands' permission to work. One example of the change can be found in the small, traditional town of Ayvalik on the Aegean Sea. Here women earn money of their own producing handbags from recycled materials.
    ITALY: A WAVE OF BANKRUPTCIES - Despite the ongoing euro crisis, the three major players in Italy's parliament are still mired in gridlock. The stalemate is affecting the economy, and every day hundreds of small businesses are shutting their doors permanently. Private consumption is down, and businesses can no longer afford to pay their workers. Much of the blame also lies with the government, which owes private businesses about 100 billion euros for goods and services. The sole beneficiaries of the recession are auction houses, which are doing booming business.
    UKRAINE: PRIVATELY OWNED TANKS - In Ukraine, some private citizens have taken to owning armored vehicles. Though they consume 160 liters of fuel an hour, their owners think tanks are a demonstration of power and masculinity. Now that the Ukrainian military has radically downsized, many military vehicles have been taken out of service and sold. For wealthy military buffs, a private tank has become the coveted new plaything. Some have invested in entire fleets of them and strut their stuff on local fields and roadways.

    Pacific Heartbeat [#202] Tonga: The Last Place On Earth Tonga is a peaceful island nation, as distant from modernity as it is physically from the western world. Ethnic Tongans convicted of murder, gang violence and other serious crimes, are being deported from the United States to Tonga. Forced to leave behind spouses, children, and family, these convicts are sent to a homeland many know nothing about. Will they adapt and survive in a community that is wary to have them? And how will the influx of these hardened criminals change Tonga: The Last Place on Earth? duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Saving The Ocean [#101H] Shark Reef In the first episode, host Carl Safina travels to Glover's Reef Marine Reserve, a coral atoll in the central American country of Belize. Accompanied by a team of U.S. researchers, who've been studying the reserve for eight years, Carl catches, tags and releases a wide variety of sharks. He scuba dives to check out the shark-counting instruments that the researchers have placed around the atoll, and he also visits the shark fin trader in Belize City's fish market. The fin trade now threatens sharks worldwide, but the sharks in Glover's Reef Reserve are safe and thriving. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG
  • 6:30 am
    Saving The Ocean [#102H] The Sacred Island In the second episode, host Carl Safina travels to the island of Pemba, part of the Zanzibar chain off the East African coast, to discover a remarkable story of local villages winning control over their vital fishing grounds. Once threatened by resort development, Pemba's pristine reefs and lagoons are now managed by, and for, the fishermen. Carl fishes with the locals in traditional dhows and dugout canoes, and meets the influential Imams whose sermons explained how the Koran requires good stewardship of the world and its resources. Pemba's fishing families are all Muslim, and Carl believes Islam could be a key to ocean conservation in the large parts of the world where fishing people are Muslim. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Nature [#3010H] The Mystery of Eels Though much of the natural world is discovered and understood, a few great mysteries remain. Consider the eel -- snakelike and slimy, with a row of jagged teeth. Yet aside from these fearsome qualities, we know little about its life. Where it goes, what it does, and how it dies, nobody knows. Hailed by poets as the "siren of the North Sea" and "love's arrow on Earth," this shadowy creature has fascinated researchers for centuries. And now James Prosek, artist, writer, and eminent naturalist, takes on the mystery of the eel himself, shedding light on the animal and the strange behavior it inspires in those who seek to know it. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    • KQET (DT25) Over the Air: Wed 8/27

      We are aware of the break-up issues for our DT25 Over the Air signal in the Monterey/Salinas area. This will also affect viewers of any cable or satellite signal provider using that transmitter as their source. Engineers are working on the problem.

    • KQET Off Air Sun 8/03 morning

      (DT25.1, 25.2, 25.3) KQET DT25 was off the air for a portion of Sunday morning, due to the transmitter taking a power hit. The signal has been restored. Most receivers should have re-acquired our signal once it returned, but a few Over the Air viewers may need to do a rescan in order to restore […]
